Ontario added 32,900 jobs in December, recording a second straight month of job creation.

Ontario’s strong plan to protect health care and education, eliminate the deficit and build a more competitive business climate helped the province add 52,400 net new jobs in 2012.

Providing the right climate to attract investment and build business is part of the McGuinty government’s plan to create jobs and strengthen the economy. A strong economy protects the services that mean the most to families — health care and education.
